Our cost increased by 10 cents last week in anticipation of this storm. I received a load last week and am sitting on 8,500 gallons at this time.
Hope and pray El and her fellow gulf residents are safe.

Starting to look like Gustav stuttered at the last minute. Still a nasty storm, but not the monster once expected. The market reaction was a slight drop in crude prices. Gasoline prices here in midcoast this morning are so far holding steady.

I find all the "Hype" about Gustav hitting all the oil wells a bunch of malarkey,a ploy by oil people to boost prices.Hurricanes hit these areas almost yearly,and it has rarely affected supply,the rigs,or refinery's.Now all of a sudden it is a big deal??? The Weather channel should just stick to weather,instead of talking about everything else.

You're right! I stopped watching the Weather Channel years ago!
I get all the info I need from the National Weather Service on the computer.

The day after Hurricane Katrina three years ago in New Orleans the price of gas jumped 52 cents in one day. Supplies were tight for about 10 weeks until the refineries got back up to speed.

Now that Gustav has lost its fury, we're hoping things get back to normal quickly and gas and food prices drop back as they were the week before the storm headed toward us. But, I fear that greed will delay those decreases until all the displaced folks get back home.
